Reader: Skatepark is so clean, Denver must have a conservative scene

In honor of Go Skateboarding Day, Britt Chester took his board out on the town last Friday for his weekly installment of Guess where?

Which inspired one reader to suggest why the Denver skatepark looked so clean.

Says Critical Bill:

How come that skate park is so fucking clean? out here in California skate park walls are all covered with graffiti tagging from anything the rollers want to spray on there. Denver must have a very conservative skate board scene there. it looks boring as fucking shit there.
Is Denver's skate scene conservative? Post your thoughts below, or join the skateboarding discussion already under way here.
